Today most people adhere to some variety of moral nihilism, which means that they believe that morality is subjective, or that it doesn’t exist as such, except inside our heads. Furthermore, they rarely or never see beyond party politics, from which they derive most of their ethics, whether they are rightist or leftist. They do have moral beliefs, but they are mostly unconscious and vague.
This has been done deliberately by the intellectuals and leaders of the Western world, to confuse us and lead us astray. Because it was not always thus. The idea of subjective morality is a reaction to Christianity. Because there arose a need to deny religion, they turned religion on its head, and morality became subjective, God was erased, contemplation gave way to empericism, and so on.
We used to have a firm understanding of Heaven and Hell, the respective future abode of the just and unjust. Now people are confused, and we are fragmented, and we have lost our unity. The latest fad seems to be either of two extremes. Either we become extreme right-wingers, or we become LGBT-rights activists. And people do act like they really mean it, but I often wonder if they even understand why they are so upset.
In my opinion, most people join these strange modern beliefs because they have no accurate understanding of our history. To any of us who have a bit of understanding, campagning for the right of men to be seen as women seems a weird obsession. A man may feel like he is a woman, but he can never as such become it.
But if you point this out to leftwingers they become furious. Because they are cut off from the wisdom of former ages, they act like children and get hysteric if anyone opposse them. With wisdom comes patience and understanding, and they don’t seem to have it.
So what is wisdom in this context? It is having the knowledge and understanding that there is a war going on in our cosmos between the good and the evil. The just and the unjust. Those that know love, and those who either hate or are indifferent to the suffering of others. This is essential, and without it we are lost, because then we fail to grasp our ultimate destiny, and the meaning of the universe.
There are good beings, and there are evil beings, and above them is a God, who, through his Messiah, comes to judge us according to our deeds. This is hard to believe for modern people, because they are used to seeing the universe as something indifferent to us. The universe placed us here, but have no further intentions for us, except for what we do to ourselves.
They believe the universe to be a chaotic and anarchistic place, with no inherent order in it which includes humanity. But you see, despite our insignificance, the universe always contained our blueprint. We were supposed to happen, and we have a destiny that we need to fulfill, and that is important.
Through discerning the order of the macrocosmos (the universe at large), we arrive at the conclusion that a similar order pervades human society. We too are ordered, and among humans this order manifests as justice, and – like the macrocosm is threatened by disorder and instability – our order is threatened by injustice and sin. Injustice and sin corrupt our world, the same way that cancer destroys the human body.
This is the reality that is denied when we make morality subjective. If morality is subjective, then it is up to the individual to define what is good and evil, and this denies that there are certain actions, that are always the same, that corrupt human society. According to them, murder can be both good and bad, or be however the individual wants to define it. Perhaps there is no morality at all.
We allign ourselves with an order that is grander than us by finding our purpose, which is to live rightously and with humility and with love for our neighbour. This is essential, and without it our civilization will simply degenerate.
